    Not really any picture updates. The rotisserie was the best investment ever. Worth the effort building it for sure. I found the plans online. Built it for less than $500. All 3/16 wall tubing. That price X4 if I’d bought one. Was able to finish welding underneath and eliminate a few more holes that aren’t necessary. With the holiday and a little vacation I hope to have it all blasted by Sunday

    Blasted the frame and painted. Once clean I was surprised to see such crude welding still covered in slag In many areas

    It’s a roller again. Front end is completely rebuilt. The body is ready to undercoat and possibly mount for the last time

    Got the roll cage in. Going out of order for awhile. Need to complete the top and get it to the upholstery shop. He wants to add sound deadening and line it

    Cool. What year is it? Can you post a picture. Do you have a donor?

    '54 R-130 dually pickup, and a '54 R-160 4X4 flatbed. Both in pretty good condition as far as rust on the sheet metal is concerned. But in serious need of minor dent-pulling, and the pickup's tailgate will be an all out effort to get flat and pretty.

    On this other Scout it has storage instead of dual tanks. Carpet was added at one time and trimmed. Wonder which choice was more popular?

    I thought the early ones had the tool box,then they offered an aux tank to go in the other side.

    Finally got the LST.
    Was hoping it would have a build detail about the little storage/door but it didn’t. Both of these Scouts are definitely 64’s.
